I know green leafy vegetables are important for my children but as soon as they see them, they’d run out the door if they could. Fortunately, with the help of other mommies with the same experience, I’ve learned a couple of trick or two by incorporating these vegetables in my kids’ favorite dishes. Voila, they didn’t even notice there were new ingredients to their food and they seem to love it still!
I guess this could also be applied to our standards of intelligence. I was browsing through a site online, Kidzmet.com, and one of their taglines made a lot of sense to me. It goes like this, “Kidzmet was created to help kids discover who they're meant to become by connecting teachers, tutors and coaches with the students they were meant to teach.”
To start with, Kidzmet will ask for your child’s Pairing Portrait. The Portrait will them match your child with a compatible mentor (not an exact mentor so that your child can expand their knowledge while cultivating their current interest). I guess what’s great about the Portrait Pairing is that Kidzmet really believe that there is more than one way to teach a child, and that in introducing things they may not necessarily “like” in a different manner may actually end up with them loving it, just like veggies in their favorite foods.
